She Claims: Art Matters – Julia Croft and Rosabel Tan
She Claims: Art Matters is a fresh series of events where you’ll rub elbows with creatives and critics while celebrating the ideas, voices and power of creative women today. Edition three is a conversation between theatre maker Julia Croft and editor and writer Rosabel Tan.
About the speakers
Julia Croft is a theatre maker and feminist performance artist. Her work seeks to challenge patriarchal structures of power, dominance and influence, resulting in work explicitly about gender, but also in work that seeks new modes of dramaturgical and narrative expression and demands a different engagement from an audience.
Julia is known for the rich contemporary production If there’s not Dancing at the Revolution, I’m Not Coming (2016), which challenges the treatment of women’s bodies in popular culture, and The Plastic Orgasm (2017), a feminist investigation of murky and contradictory nature of pornography and pornographic representation of female bodies, sexuality, and pleasure. Her new show Body Double, co-produced by Silo Theatre, is part of the Auckland Arts Festival 2018 programme.
Rosabel Tan is the founding editor of online arts and culture publication The Pantograph Punch and artistic director of Satellites, a series of events, exhibitions and encounters across Tāmaki Makaurau showcasing the city's best contemporary Asian artists. Her writing has been published in Hue & Cry, 1972, Metro, Paperboy and The Spinoff.
